Art Journal | relax

Today I am back with a fun art journal. Using lots of techniques for the background and sharing many tips along the way.

I worked on my 6×6 disc bound art journal. My focal point is a Bloody Mary cocktail, and it’s from the Tim Holtz -Cocktails Blueprint( SBC | SSS ) stamp set. For the background I used Dylusions sprays. If you wonder what colors I used you will find everything linked below the video.

Can you see all the texture at the background?! It was easy to achieve with the Tim Holtz – Distress Resist Spray ( SBC | SSS | JGG ) over a stencil. It’s not only the lovely effect that it gives, it’s also textured to the feel!  It resists the dylusion sprays and the result was awesome.

I also did the ghosting technique, lots of stamping and splattering to get this amazing background. You can see everything demonstrated in the video.

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

  13. As always, a great layout. I’m so glad you used the Distress Crayon rather than the Big Brush Marker this time. I don’t have the markers but I do have the Distress Crayons, never thought of using them like that. Thanks for another wonderful video.
